finished product!
Added a sweet burlap pillow (I simply slipcovered an ugly yard sale pillow)  and attached a sweet red felt flower pin.  I really thought this project needed something RED!
back or chair detail...I simply sanded the chairs in spots.  I love the fornal chairs roughed up a bit!
Before pics of this sad pair !
finished product!

finished product!

Two yard sale chairs ....I snagged for free!  My father and I simply cut a rectangular piece of plywood and upholstered it, attaching it from the bottom!  I actually found this great graphic print at Walmart! 

This bench is headed to a charity auction for my children's school...I hate to see it go...!

Thank you to everyone that commented & gave me some great ideas!
